This stackable USB port hub is designed to work with virtually every Windows, macOS, or Linux system. And, because you can use it as either a USB-C hub, or a USB hub 3.0, you’ll enjoy forward and backward compatibility between USB-C, 3.0, 2.0, and 1.1 hosts and devices. On legacy systems, the latest drivers and updates should be installed to ensure compatibility.
- The hub itself requires no driver installation (although individual devices may require drivers). Supports Microsoft Windows 10 through XP, macOS X, and Linux kernels 3.0 and later.
- Installing latest USB 3.0 xHCI host controller drivers is recommended. This hub is not recommended for use with older Texas Instruments, Fresco Logic, Etron, or Wistron USB 3.0 host controllers.
- Older Mac Pros with USB 3.0 PCI Express add-on cards may not work with this or any USB 3.0 hub.
- 2.4Ghz wireless devices such as keyboard/mouse receivers, Bluetooth and WiFi adapters, may not work in close proximity to USB 3.0 devices or hubs.
Other Common Uses
At home it's a USB hub for laptops or a community charging spot for phones and tablets. At school, stack several to easily charge and sync student devices. In big operations, deploy as many hubs as you need to test and charge at high volume.
